Your Best Options for Office Flooring

By Brian, June 30, 2016

There are many flooring options for offices that you can choose from and the wide range of choices available can easily overwhelm you. But there’s no need to look at all of them, the following are the most popular and most recommended choices:


1.
Raised Access Floors

This type of floor is suitable for data centers, computer rooms and just about any office environment that utilize a lot of wires and cables. With raised access flooring, the design of the office will be more efficient and organized because wiring and cabling can be hidden underneath the floor, saving space and ensuring comfort for your employees.

2. Carpet

It has been traditionally used in most office spaces because carpets are effective and functional at the same time. Choose quality carpets even if it may cost more initially. They will last longer and are very durable. Your choice of carpet should also be appropriate for the area it will be installed. A plush carpet may be great for homes but it won’t do well in an office setting because it will be subject to a lot of wear and tear.

3. Carpet Tiles

This is a good alternative to carpets and it offers a wide range of styles, patterns and colors. You can also create patterns and effects with carpet tiles. Another advantage to choosing this option is that tiles are easily replaceable. If one area is damaged, you don’t need to replace the whole thing. You can just replace the damaged tiles.

4. Vinyl

Sometimes people confuse vinyl with linoleum. Vinyl tends to look esthetically better than linoleum and also has a modern appeal. You can pick from contemporary and attractive colors and designs, and some even offer cushion and water-proof options to ensure longer use.

5. Tiles

Tiles are easy to maintain and clean, and they are perfect for creating a sleek and sophisticated appearance. But it’s important to buy high quality tiles and hire professionals to properly install them. Tiles need to be laid properly so they can last longer.

6. Polished Timber

You have two options for this type of flooring – genuine polished timber boards and floor panel systems. You can use a combination of these two, to save on costs. For example, you can use genuine polished timber in the reception area, which is the very first thing your clients or customers will see, and then simply use floor panel systems for the flooring of office cubicles.

7. Linoleum

If you have a very tight budget, then you can also opt for linoleum flooring. This might conjure images of your grandmother’s kitchen back in the day but there are actually high quality linoleum flooring available, and they come in modern designs as well.


Office flooring is a crucial aspect of your interior design. So you need to pick one that not only looks great but also offers durability to ensure they will last a long time. Remember that offices get a lot of foot traffic, so you must see to it that you pick a durable and high quality flooring to make the most out of your investment.
